 Privacy

The NIH eRA Commons freely provides visitors information about various aspects of NIH grants administration business processes. In addition, the Commons is comprised of a number of secure interfaces that require grantee organization registration and user accounts to be established. Following logon by account holders, it is through these secure interfaces that grants application-related information is collected and provided. Although a great deal of information is collected from NIH grant applicants, awardees, and grantee organization staff, only select parts of it are ever made available beyond the NIH grants policy and/or administration offices. Within those offices, and on this Web site, the user's personal privacy and the confidentiality of their work will be protected. Specifically:


When inquiries are E-mailed to the NIH, the question/comment and the E-mail address information are stored so that an electronic response can be composed and sent. Unless otherwise required by statute, the NIH does not identify publicly who sends questions or comments to the Commons site. Information will not be obtained that will allow the NIH to personally identify any particular user when they visit unrestricted Commons sites, unless they chose to provide such information. If a Commons user links to another (non-Commons) site from any NIH Commons pages, the NIH is not responsible for information that may or may not be gathered from the linked site. Any questions about NIH privacy policies as they relate to the NIH Commons should be addressed to the Commons administrators at: commons@od.nih.gov.
